Avella plans rally against Corporate Park moves

City Councilman Tony Avella (D-Bayside) sent a letter to constituents this week expressing his unhappiness with the city’s plans for the College Point Corporate Park, which includes moving five Willets Point businesses to the area.

“Let me be perfectly clear, I am vehemently against the relocation of any businesses from the Willets Point area to the Corporate Park,” Avella said in the letter. “It is completely unacceptable for Mike Bloomberg to call these Willets Point buisnesses “blighted” and then move them to another community — our community.”

Avella has planned a rally protesting the city plans for Saturday April 18 at 11 a.m.  There is a lot more happening with this situation, but I’ll have more on that tomorrow. Full letter after the jump.
